Imagine every room in your house looked like this-or worse.
Because you have twin 3 year olds and an 8 month old.
Because you are packing to move in 7 days.
Imagine you have to show the house to potential renters in 24 hours.
Would you panic?
Imagine tomorrow's showing rang the doorbell right now.
I didn't have time to panic. I said, sure, come on in, keep in mind I have three small children, I'm packing to move in 7 days, and I was expecting you tomorrow.
She said ok. WHAT?!
Most embarrassing, humbling moment of my life. I let a complete stranger see everything including my unmade bed and pump parts strewn about, the stinky potty training bathroom, the laundry in the washing machine...everything. It's so messy I told my mon I wouldn't even let HER see it (mostly for comedic effect, you should know, but it would still be embarrassing if she saw it)!
But you know what? She was not only a fellow multiples' mom, she was a triplet plus one mom of four sons, the kind of mom I revere wholeheartedly. So she understood.
Not to mention, she seems to have survived raising them with grace and dignity, giving me much hope for my future.
I really hope her family is chosen to love our house next.
Now, do I bother cleaning for the other showing tomorrow?
